  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1⅓ cups mashed overripe bananas
  • ½ cup Castries Peanut Rum
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and 3/4 cup brown sugar.
  4. Stir in eggs, vanilla, rum, pecans and mashed bananas until well blended.
  5. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.
  6. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  7. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar (and additional pecans if preferred) on top of mixture.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
